The Bible tells us that everything we have comes from God (Psalm 24:1). We are to use his good gifts in ways that honour him. That should include giving, as a grateful response to the generosity of God shown most of all in the death of his Son. In 2 Corinthians 8:9, Paul writes: “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” And in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Paul speaks about giving intentionally, generously and cheerfully: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
